PC Staff member: Hey Löki, how is your community mapping going?
Löki Gale: Um...good?
PC Staff member: Good, good. It is always an asset to know what your community has because you can help establish sustainable projects.
Löki Gale: Huh? I don't get it...Yup. Sustainability is the name of the game. For me, it has been a struggle. The photography project (after much revamping and reorganization) has finally begun to see the sustainable light and last week, Jessica A., Mike R., Jane R., and I worked our hineys off to take that next step with our "annual" summer camp (2 years makes it annual, right?).
Along with a few other awesome PCVs, our Zaq group trained a gaggle of counterparts to organize and lead a 6-day day summer camp. Similar to last year, the counterparts lesson planned and facilitated the day program; however, unlike last year, all the preparation was left to them. The Sunday before camp, I was laid out on my couchbed, watching NCIS re-runs instead of spending hours making play dough and stripping magazines for beads.
